Marmalade Muffins

This is simply my all-time favorite recipe! The sweet orange marmalade added to the icing and baked right into these golden muffins makes breakfast something to celebrate.

    The muffins were soft and moist but had very little orange flavor, so I decided to make an orange filling like you would for an orange meringue pie. I shot some filling into each muffin like you would for a jelly donut.That did the trick. My husband was a happy camper.
